How the 2024 Color of the Year Can Work for Your Home

Posted on May 15, 2024

It’s always nice to start a brand new year feeling relaxed, excited, and peachy! This is exactly what Pantone envisioned as it revealed the 2024 Color of the Year —  Pantone 13-2023 Peach Fuzz.

Described as a “velvety gentle peach whose all-embracing spirit enriches heart, mind, and body,” PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz aims to not only bring warmth, calmness, and coziness, but also foster deeper connections and collaborations.

This sophisticated and contemporary hue, blurring the lines between orange and pink, is also chosen with the intent to inspire acts of kindness and sharing, and to promote well-being for mind and body in this fast-paced world.

If you’re aiming to give your space a makeover (little or otherwise) in 2024, why not use this color to your advantage? Let the Pantone Color of the Year for 2024 serve as your inspiration so you can re energize your life for the year ahead. Who knows, it may just be your lucky color for 2024!

Welcome the Year With Peach Fuzz Walls

According to Pantone, incorporating this shade into interiors can help create a “welcoming ambiance” and deliver “gentle warmth.” With this in mind, make a subtle and soft statement by painting your walls or applying wallpaper with this peach hue. Whether for adults’ or kids’ rooms, the finished outcome will definitely impress.

Out of Island Paints’ many color choices, Pale Orange and Terran Cotta are the closest in terms of shade match.

Accomplish Your Desired Walls With These Products

To ensure your paint job lasts the entire year and beyond, use high-quality paint products like Island Life Primer White and Island Life Paints

Island Life products are low in VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds and odor) and are antimicrobial water-based options made from premium acrylic dispersion. These can be applied carefully using a brush, roller, or spray.

Island Life Primer White can be used as a primer and a sealer coat for interior masonry, concrete, concrete blocks, bricks, and cement boards. Primers like this are a must-have for hiding imperfections on the surface and promoting better adhesion and application of subsequent products.

On the other hand, Island Life Paints can be used as a finish coat for the interior walls and ceilings of bedrooms and nursery rooms. These paints can come in flat, satin, semi-gloss, or gloss finishes that are suitable for various aesthetic purposes.

Reminder: When using these Island Paints products, clean the surface and remove dirt and dust prior to application. Wear adequate safety gear like goggles, gloves, and face masks too.

Use these products as is, or add 1/2 to 1/4 liters of clean water to a gallon of paint. Apply one to two coats of primer and two to three coats of paint to ensure optimal performance and appearance. Once done, seal the containers tightly and store in an area that is above 35 degrees Celsius and away from children. If the products need to be disposed of, follow government regulations.

Peach Fuzz Floors Are a Calming Sight Too

If you are already satisfied with how your walls look but want to add a touch of peach fuzz to your space, look a little further down on the floor. Given that Peach Fuzz is a shade nestled between pink and orange, it can be a bit tricky to find wood or other flooring material that is of a similar color. 

Not many people choose colorful floors (Peach Fuzz-inspired ones included) as well due to concerns about these being “dumihin.” A light shade like this may not be able to withstand or resist dirt, dust, and other substances that can accumulate under shoes or even feet. 

However, a very easy way to add a touch of Peach Fuzz to floors without risking so much money would be to add an eye-catching rug that matches your space’s aesthetic. Choosing and buying your own rug gives you limitless possibilities — you have free rein to choose the rug’s design, size, or material. You can even make your own if you have the materials needed.

Remember: Do your research before buying a rug. Determine how big you would want it to be and how much space it would take up in your room or space. Make an effort to regularly clean the rug too, so it still looks eye-catching and pleasant to the eyes.

Stand Out With Peach Fuzz Furniture

Not a rug person? Try adding a statement piece with this shade! Expect a boom of Peach Fuzz-inspired furniture in the days, weeks, or even months to come as this color’s popularity rises. Feel free to browse through your favorite furniture stores or even look into secondhand shops or online groups that sell pre-loved items. 

Examples of Peach Fuzz-inspired furniture to add to your space would be couches or loveseats, chairs, coffee or side tables, or even cabinets. These pieces can add three Cs to your space: character, calmness, and comfort.

If you are up to the challenge, you can even paint on existing wooden furniture as well. High-quality Island Paints products like Island Wood Primer & Sealer 801 White and Island ColorQuick help ensure the existing surfaces stay protected from other elements and provide a seamless finish.

Remember: When using these Island Paints products for refurbishing furniture, carefully read the product instructions so you will know how to properly use and store them once done. Wear safety gear like goggles, face masks, or gloves as well when handling these. Feel free to ask an industry expert too for additional knowledge on how to give your furniture a much-needed makeover.

Add Pleasing Peachy Accent Pieces

Undeniably the most “low-commitment” or even “budget-friendly” tip out of these options, switching up usual items in your space for Peach Fuzz-inspired items can do the trick. 

You can start with using peach pillow cases, bed linens, blankets, throws, and towels, or even accessories like vases, sculptures, and other trinkets you already have. Art prints or paintings hung up on the walls are another good way to include Peach Fuzz to your space. If you like seeing a bit of nature, display flowers and/or plants that have a similar hue.

Remember: Let your imagination run wild if you have a bounty of Peach Fuzz-inspired items at your disposal. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to the amount or limit of Peach Fuzz you should add to your space.

The new year that lies ahead may seem daunting, but with a positive mindset and a rejuvenated space, you can achieve your goals and reach new heights. Let PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz, the color of the year for 2024, inspire you to connect with others and transform you into a better person.  

Hopefully, these home decoration tips can help you bring a lot more Peach Fuzz into your home while staying true to your current vision or plan for it.
